You’re Invited! Join us for a Live Holiday Decorating Party

Hi I'm Katrina~ Welcome to Live Beautifully! We connect on all things life, love, motherhood, careers, and overcoming obstacles, together. 

It’s time to channel your inner Martha… because we’re going to make dried garland together and decorate the table for Thanksgiving! Best part? It’s going to be super simple and everyone can do it. I created a little Amazon shopping list below so you can receive your items in time for the party!

Whether you’re hosting or decorating for the holidays, this garland will look beautiful in your home. It can also be a beautiful hostess gift for wherever you’re headed this holiday. I highly recommend a hostess gift… it’s a lot of work to host a holiday, so a little kindness and love go a long way.

Join us live this Friday, November 17th from 4:00-5:00p for our first live episode of Live Beautifully on YouTube!

If you’re making the garland, you’ll just need:

  • Dried oranges – 2
  • Dried Blood oranges – 2
  • Yarn– this is different than the burlap twine below – 1
  • Needle kit – 1
  • See below if you’re making the dried oranges yourself. You’ll need parchment paper to bake

If you’d like to make the place settings:

  • The Gold Pen – 1
  • Magnolia leaves- 1 bag
  • Vellum Paper – 1
  • Paper Fasteners – 1
  • Cinnamon Sticks 1
  • Burlap Twine 1


  • I included 12-inch candles- but whatever you’d like! – I like 8-10 candles
  • Candlestick holders or votives – Order 2 packs of 3
  • Cheesecloth – I ordered 2
  • Make sure you have napkins (I love these on Amazon), plates, chargers if you like, stemware (I love this collection), and flatware.



I ordered the dried oranges on Amazon above, but if you’d like to make them before the party, here are the instructions.

The day before the party:

  • Preheat your oven to 250 degrees
  • Slice up 6 oranges and 6 blood oranges
  • Place on parchment paper on a wire rack
  • Bake for 3-4 hours (be on standby)
  • Flip orange slices every hour
  • It’s okay to remove them when they’re still somewhat orange… they’ll dry on your garland too!

See you on Friday! Pour your favorite mocktail or champagne and get ready to have some fun.

I can’t wait to see you there!

    Will the garland-making require any leaves or greenery?

    This is soooooo fun!

    Do you have an exact count of what we need? For instance, If I were to buy everything on the list, how many garland/tablescapes could I make? Trying to invite a friend to make one too but divy up the excess that comes from that order. 😍

    • Katrina Scott says:

      Aww love! That’s so fun! I will update the list with quantity recommendations for 1 so you can double up. 🙂 Can’t wait to see you next Friday!

    This looks AMAZING and I have already ordered the Amazon supplies. Thank you for making that so easy 😊!

    Will this be recorded and available in your YouTube for future reference?

    Thank you!
